Sweet Noodle Kugel with Golden Raisins and Walnuts
We wanted to upgrade this eggy baked pudding from side dish to main event.
Why This Recipe Works
For our sweet kugel recipe we preferred versions that used cottage cheese, raisins, and cinnamon but our tests revealed we would need to fix the dairy element of the dish, as well as come up with a way to make the kugel more flavorful. We decided to try different combinations of sour cream, cottage cheese, and cream cheese in our kugel recipe. Each offered an important contribution to the flavor and texture of the dairy element, so we decided on a mix of all three. The addition of fresh lemon zest provided the rich dairy filling with a touch of lightness.
